Environmental Effects on forage Quality and Testing for the Differences Grant uri icon



  • Using current forage testing to compare high versus low elevation grown hay, or to compare hays from different cuttings, is not reliable. The purpose of this project is to develop additional forage tests or add environmental variables to prediction equations to more closely predict animal intake and performance for alfalfa hays from different environments (temperatures).
